TGI Tips: Ways to Stay Sane While Finding Your Holiday Gifts

Happy Holiday Shopping


  • Start the habit of having signature “go-to gift” for each type of person on your list: hostess, coworker, friend, etc.  It saves you time and you end up having your own style of gift-giving each season.


  • Can’t find a substantial enough gift for someone on your list? Find a few small gifts they’ll love and put them all in a cute DIY gift package.  Try using a practical vessel like a chic ice bucket or square vase.


  •  Don’t get too crazy with DIY gifts for the Holidays unless you are a seasoned DIY-er.   It’s easier to plan DIY gifts throughout the year vs the holidays when you have so many people on your list.


  • Know what apps to use – Huckster, track when an item goes on sale.  Poachit, a bookmarklet to find coupon codes, Swirl, deals when you walk in a store


  •  When shopping for gifts for out of town family and friends, try using national chains that have stores in their area so they can easily return or exchange if they need.

Dedicated Post: New Gift List App WyshMe


We love finding new ways to make gift-giving super simple and easy.

It’s a stressful time of year, and anything that helps make getting and giving what you want easier, we love trying out!

We’ve been playing around on a new app, WyshMe  that aims to help busy people (especially all you time-starved Moms out there) share gift ideas with your family and friends and build WyshLists for everyone in the family. This way all your gift lists are organized in one spot, not 20 emails or a pile of ripped out and circled catalogue pages and hopefully everyone can actually get what they want this year.  The app works with over 100 merchants so you can find items from stores you already shop at.

Test it our for yourself and registry at and also enter their Sweepstakes, once a week, they randomly select a Wysh and reward the sender with a $100 gift card to make that Wysh come true.

Follow The Gift Insider’s board WyshMe WyshList Board on Pinterest.
